WHIPLASH DOES NOT HAVE TO BE CHRONIC!

I have had a patient tell me after a severe car accident which required ambulance transport, the ER doctor told her she would have chronic neck pain due to the whiplash and “That is simply the way it is.”

 

I saw her years later after the headaches associated with the neck pain became unbearable and her condition resolved in short order.

 

Whiplash is a condition where sudden stopping causes stretching of muscles and connective tissues and subtle misalignment of the bones of the neck.  The first few bones at the top of the neck are especially vulnerable to this misalignment due to their unique anatomy.  The misalignment of this unique anatomy can make it hard for your body to heal itself and cause long standing issues, such as:

  • Neck pain (both at the top of the neck and at the bottom of the neck extending into the upper back)
  • Headache
  • Nerve pain
  • Pain in the upper back between the shoulder blades
  • TMJ disorders
  • Shoulder pain
  • Arm and hand pain
  • Pain in the low back
  • Hip pain
  • Mental fatigue and fogginess
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • General sense of unwellness

﷯Frequently these conditions persist despite physical therapy and Chiropractic care. Why is this? Quite simply, it comes back to the unique anatomy of the first few bones in the neck. Certain misalignments cannot be fully assessed without specialized analysis of special x-ray views. There are two reasons for this: 1. All the relevant of structures of the upper neck cannot be directly touched due to all the muscles in the way; 2. Frequently the information of what can be touched can be misleading because it is incomplete with no reference point.

Resolution of these problems and your symptoms can be as simple as three steps away!

 

  1. Specialized x-rays with specialized analysis.  This lets us determine exactly the misalignments of the upper neck, with no information missing.
  2. Using the information from the x-rays, gentle, crackless, specific adjustment is rendered to bring all the structures back in place and allow the healing process to finally begin, even if it is years later.  There is no twisting, popping, or fast movement in the neck!
  3. Once the upper neck is stabilized, exercises which bring your connective tissues back in place.

 

 

Results are not months away.  Typically, significant results are seen in under two weeks!
